Migrating a site from multisite to single WordPress install


I’ve got a client on my multisite who wish to have more control over his site by having his own cPanel and WordPress install.

What is the best way to migrate his site from the multisite to a new independently WordPress install?

Best Regards,

    The best way to ensure that everything is copied over correctly is to install the new WordPress site then use the import/export tool to copy the content over.

    Note that things like links, plugins, themes. settings etc will need to be applied manually on the new site.

    Alternatively you could look at using a tool like BackupBuddy.
